Description

With all OMRON blood pressure monitors, the recommended time between calibration depends on the use of the product. If the monitor is being used in a home or personal environment, we recommend they are re-calibrated every 2 years. If the monitor is being used in a clinical environment such as a doctors surgery, we recommend that this is done annually to ensure the accuracy of the results.

The cuff should be firmly secured but not too tight – just enough so that it is difficult to slide 2 fingers under the cuff. This space is imperative for an accurate reading. OMRON's digital Blood Pressure Monitors use the Oscillometric method of blood pressure measurement that detects your blood's movement through your brachial artery and converts this movement into a digital reading. Additionally, many factors can affect your blood pressure, including physical exertion, emotional fluctuations, medications and stress, so it is important to regularly monitor your blood pressure at home. It is important to ensure the arm cuff you are using with your monitor is the correct size for you. If the incorrect cuff is used the result may be an inaccurate reading and/or the cuff will be damaged (air bladder). If connectivity is important to you, set your sights on a monitor with Bluetooth connections and smart home compatibility. Blood pressure monitors are fairly inexpensive, but you’ll save even more if you go with a manual-pump monitor.

Although you may know your desired numbers, having a little help can come in handy. Models with multicolored lights can show how your reading compares to normal results. If there’s more than one person in your household, you also may want to consider blood pressure monitors that store multiple readings. Instead of buying separate devices for everyone in your home who has high blood pressure, you’ll be able to consolidate everything in one place. Some monitors handle this more easily than others, though. So you may want to watch for one that makes it easy to capture multiple readings without having to always make sure you’re under the right username.

A blood pressure monitor will be of no use if its readings are inaccurate. A monitor with dual sensors can improve accuracy. Three readings are taken, then averaged to ensure the information you’re getting is accurate. Built-in accuracy programs or special designs can also improve results.

Overall Take

No two arms are the same size, so it’s important to determine the size of your bicep with a tape measure before buying. Blood pressure cuffs are adjustable within a certain range, so it likely won’t have to be correct down to the centimeter. Most cuffs are measured in inches. Sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Rest your arm on a table with your palm facing upward. The cuff should be level with your heart. Do not talk or move during the measurement.

To determine your arm size, use a cloth tape measure and place the tape measure midway between your elbow and your shoulder around the circumference of your upper arm. Wrap the tape measure evenly around your arm. Do not pull the tape tight. Note the precise measurement in centimetres. A brief note stating that your machine requires servicing & explaining the issues you are having with obtaining readings, if any.Relax your arm and place your elbow on the table so that the cuff is at the same level as your heart. Turn the palm of your hand upward. For a more complete view of your heart health, go with a monitor that shows your pulse along with your blood pressure. Although many blood pressure monitors are automatic, you’ll find some that require you to press on a bulb repeatedly to manually inflate the cuff. You can save money by opting for one of these models, and you’ll likely also find they’re more durable than their mechanically inclined counterparts. They also tend to be less expensive, although blood pressure monitors are fairly inexpensive to begin with, so you might find it’s worth it to pay a little more for an automatic device.
